Topic: page size problem from Word 2000 -> PDF

I'm using Adobe Acrobat 5 to convert files from Microsoft Word 2000 to PDF format, under a Windows 2000 O/S (all dictated to me, I'm afraid). I use the PDFMaker option rather than the Distiller, as then I can auto-convert word headings to PDF bookmarks.

All is fine for A4 paper size conversion, but any A5 sized documents are coming out wrong. The page is correct under word but becomes an A4 page with the A5 contents centered when converted. I've tried changing the settings in the following places:
1. PDFMaker conversion settings
2. Distiller settings (even though I'm not using them)

I used to be able to convert A5 Word documents to A5 PDF documents without this problem - it's only emerged when my PC was upgraded. I'd rather not reformat the word documents to A4 so is there something I am overlooking? Help!
